‘Mechanical career leads to community contributions’. Starting life as a mechanic, then moving into education in 1977, Ron was a popular teacher at local tech schools and South West TAFE.
Ron introduced his children to Go Karts in 1989. When the boys finished karting, Ron stayed on attending committee meetings for many years and is still helping as a Technical Inspector and Chief Scrutineer.  The club honoured Ron with Life Membership.
At Warrnambool Vintage Car Club, Ron volunteers as the Safety Inspector and displays his 1926 Dodge and E Holden for people to enjoy at local ‘show and shine’ events.
